Signed by The Author. 1573221090. keywords: Literature England. inventory # 26286. FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE TESSERACT takes place in the Philippines and follows three sets of characters whose fates are intertwined in a deadly chase that is set in motion through a misunderstanding. Sean is an inexperienced British merchant seaman waiting to keep an appointment with a Filipino mafia lord and his henchmen in a seedy Manila hotel. Meanwhile, in the suburbs a mother puts her children to bed and remembers her first love on the backwater island where she grew up, and a wealthy psychologist studies the dreams of a couple of abandoned street kids, who are drawn into the wake of the gangsters’ chase. THE TESSERACT is a story of personal tragedies that occur for no comprehensible reason, and investigates the ways in which we explain them, whether through religion, myth, psychology, or science. It balances science against religion, and our wills against our fates, asking the elusive question of how we can make sense of events in a world where meaning lies beyond our grasp.
